    Venue: Afternic BIN

    Note: This domain could indeed have been sold for more if kept longer term, but I discounted some domains to get better cashflow right now.

    BTW January has started full power for me:

    Untitled.png

    - Venue: Afternic BIN
    - Hold time: 10 months, hand reg at drop

    There is some additional intriguing story here.

    The domain was listed with a low price by accident (my mistake) and then someone tried to lowball me with an $100 offer. I denied, and immediately corrected the price to 2488 everywhere listed. Less than an hour later, sold and paid via BIN.

    This is NOT the first time I saw this nasty issue.

    I think someone has access to someone else's purchase details and try to snatch the sale from the domain seller. (name was Benjamin(!) yeah, and offer was $100...? then I got via message, the same ol' story that he's a poor student and only has a hundred....? can I be a kind soul and make discount) And he was using a French IP via VPN, but his English was flawless US American...? Man, does this walk like a duck or not.

    This has prompted me to an immediate and persistent change:

    I've removed all make offer from all marketplaces and set fixed price only, by making the min offer price the same as the BIN price on all domains under 3K. If you are confident in your pricing, that's what you need to do.

    I'll never go back to make offer again.

    its not make offer that is the issue. Its make offer with a super low opening offer that you have no intention of selling at is the problem, congrats on your sale.

    Thanks! Correct, it was listed like that by mistake. However there are additional problems with make offer.

    Someone that sees your domain on Sedo might also visit the domain and offer you half the price if you have make offer there - and you might take it and lose the full sale price. So by having make offer on the lander, you are likely to undercut yourself.

    Also, I've seen buyers searching on both Afternic and Sedo and looking for where the price is lower. And the lander as well.

    Again if you are confident in your pricing you should set BIN only. I have BIN on Afternic, Sedo and Dan and I prefer to sell retail price only for the ones that are indeed valuable. My price, or feel free to come back later.

    Edit: You can spot if you're undercutting yourself, if you deny all make offers and it get bought via BIN at Afternic or Sedo 30 minutes later, and this repeats, then yeah - most likely it was your Afternic/Sedo buyer looking for a better deal.

    Hello, thanks for sharing
    I also have two questions

    01. If you use Afternic to list, Sedo lists and uses Dan's sale page,
    Will this bring sales? If you do not use sedo to display the page, there will be no traffic

    02.
    If you do not use their DNS, please use sedo
    How to use their sale page

    Purchased: 10/2019
    Venue: Namepros
    Price Paid: $30 (Paid $20 plus $10 to renew) plus one renewal $8 = $38 investment

    *I had it listed on Afternic for $4999. GD Broker emailed me a $2500 offer. I rejected and said 4k minimum. It was sold immediately for the 4k.

    Here's where I had posted the acquisition in Snap Of The Day a little over 12 months ago.
    Good sale for a .org. There are good deals here on NP.

    It is like domain exposure on afternic is high than that of Dan and sedo.....

    What do you think???

    Sure. It helps to have the domain available for purchase no matter what registrar its listed at. GD Afternic have a monopoly.

    Thank you God

    Overall 2020 was my best year ever in sales

    Seems like "Electric" is becoming my favorite/lucky keyword

    Last year I sold ElectricCar(.)com for $180K

    Ended December 2020 with Six fig sales month.

    2021 started with a little bang.

    B/e/E/l/e/c/t/r/i/c/./c/o/m for $39995

    Purchase Price : $860

    Hold Time : 13 Months

    Sale type : Direct Bin sale (No Outbound. I never sold anything via Outbound till date)

    My humble request to all please do not write name in the comment.
